Whether you added a contact from an email, or manually created it, Hotmail lets you edit your contacts' profile information at any time. It is possible to add multiple email addresses, a mailing address, phone number, etc. to each of your contacts, making Hotmail a great online address book. This tutorial shows you how to edit pre-existing contacts' information.

This will open the Contacts "panel", where all your contacts are listed; this includes contacts you created manually, added from an email, or imported from other contact lists.
